Thanks for dropping by! My name is Sandra Bretschneider, and I am the founder and author of “He Gently Leads You”. While you're here, I'd love to share a bit of my journey with you.

Ever since I was a girl, I loved to write. Then, one day in 2009, I distinctly remember surrendering my gift to God and asking him for an opportunity to use it. The same day, God responded by immediately providing an opportunity for me to write for a Christian column in my local newspaper. From 2009-2013, I regularly contributed to the “Truth and Consequences” column in the Morganton News Herald in North Carolina. Since then, I now pursue new adventures in my hometown in Florida.

Most days I spend living out the blessed life as “Mommy” to my three young daughters. I also work per diem as a speech-language pathologist. My husband and I met in Colorado as backpacking guides and continue to pursue many adventures together. For our date nights, we enjoy seeking quiet, picturesque places outdoors and try to avoid the crowds as much as possible. (Read more of our beautiful love story here.)

In other moments of spare time, I'm in my kitchen baking. I enjoy baking breads or pastries, and I especially love cake decorating. If I'm not in the kitchen, you can find me out on a long run. 

But wait! There's more! I saved the best part for last! Read more of my story on this page
